What are the features of the BankVic 12 Months Regular Income?

The competitive interest rates offered by term deposit accounts makes them a profitable investment opportunity for Australians who don’t mind limited access to their money. Rates, fees and other features will vary between banks, so consider comparing multiple accounts before making a commitment to one:

Interest rates from 2.50% p.a.

If you invest from $5,000, the starting interest rate is 2.50% p.a.. This is a term deposit of one year.

How is my interest calculated and paid?

The interest is calculated on your daily balance in the account. You can choose fortnightly, monthly, quarterly or yearly interest payments into a separate account, or allow it to be compounded with the balance at the end of the year.

Interest is paid into your nominated account

In order to receive regular income interest payments you must nominate a BankVic transaction account for this one to be linked to.

$0 Account keeping fees

No monthly or maintenance fees will be charged to you.

$5,000 minimum investment

To open the account you must be able to invest at least $5,000.

Additional deposits permitted

You are permitted to make additional deposits into the account in increments of $2,000.

Automatic re-investment upon account maturity

At least one week before the account is due to complete the term, you will receive a written notice from BankVic along with its current interest rates. If you do not respond to this notice with instructions on what to do with the account the full amount in the account will be reinvested in a new term deposit at the current rate and for the same payment terms as your previous account.

Penalties apply for early withdrawals

Generally an early withdrawal of all or part of the funds will not be permitted, but if extenuating circumstances dictate it is necessary you will need to make the request in writing. At the bank’s discretion the withdrawal will be granted and you could be subject to a reduction in the interest rate.

Membership restrictions apply

BankVic is a mutual bank which has chosen to limit their products and services to only those Australian who are members of a police force or other form of public service. Family members of eligible persons are also welcome to join. You can compare other BankVIC products and services here.
